Seeking Info on Incident Reporting Can't Post

Hey guys! Maybe this is the wrong forum to post this, but it seemed to be the most fitting. I jump at a fairly large dropzone that has a lot of military training going on throughout the year. In the time I have been jumping there, I have heard of a few incidents and witnessed a few as well. My question is, why do I see and hear about these things, yet I never see them reported here or in Parachutist? Can anyone offer some insight on why this is so?

Because reporting in the US is not compulsory and if an incident is reported here all sorts of clueless crap and finger-pointing is posted which acts as a disincentive for voluntary reporting.

Good enough reason?

I suppose, but does Parachutist share an equally tarnished reputation for misinformation?

No not the mag.... but the BOD members will take your reports and hand them over the to the lawyers who are suing a GM dz over a death.

Call me ignorant, but why would the BOD purposely destroy the sport that it regulates by doing such a thing?

IDK maybe you should ask the former regional director why he did that.....

I think he was asking for details about what you're taling about re: USPA suing a DZ.

If not, that I am now asking you to elaborate.

The military does their own very thorough accident investigations, and do not answser to dropzone.com or USPA. You can send the military branch a freedom of information act request to get a copy of their investigations.

Wrong forum to be getting into politics, IMO.

I had no idea that there were these issues with the BOD. Does the military do reports on non-military incidents as a practice or just in certain circumstances like when they're involved in studies such as the Dual Square Report? Also, Pops, this wasn't meant to be a political discussion, just an inquiry into why there appears to be such a fair amount of reporting from some DZs and little, if any, from others.

P.S. When I said "regulates", I mean to the extent that the BSRs are regulation. Not necessarily in the FAR sense of the word.

They don't, but it makes a great story.
